[photopress:fancheng.jpg,full,alignright]Fancheng Port in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region has added a highway container transport service. It has imported 15 Volvo container trailers from Sweden. This move should further improve container transport services at Fangcheng Port and lay a good foundation for developing efficient door-to-door transport services. Fangcheng Port, which is on the northern shore of the Beibu Gulf, now has 27 berths, including 12 deep-water berths.
Fancheng is considered a most convenient sea outlet for southwest Chinese regions to Southeast Asia and other parts of the world. The port built a berth late last year in cooperation with railway departments to handle containers transported to the port via trains. It has also constructed another berth, with a designed annual capacity for handling 200,000 TEUs, one of the largest of its kind in southeast China and soon due to be in service.
